Inkspeak: This Is Our Soil by Mark Sheeky

This is our soil our mother earth

the things beneath us that feed us

its built from remnants of decaying plants

remanants of our bodies

our bodies rotting

which we must eat

we must take it in

we must absorb it through our skin

take them up through our roots, build them high to the temples of our skin

tall in these vast forests made from mangroves

our dead bones of history

these great brown castles

the stalagmites of life

this is soil

this is our bodies

elements of the earth

its crystal grit beneath our feet

it’s built from remnants of decaying plants

remnants which we must eat

we must take it in

we must absorb it through our skin

this is our soil our mother earth

the things beneath us that feed us

its built from remnants of decaying plants

remanants of our bodies

our bodies rotting

which we must eat

we must take it in

we must absorb it through our skin

take them up through our roots, build them high to the temples of our skin

tall in these vast forests made from mangroves

our dead bones of history

these great brown castles

the stalagmites of life

this is soil

this is our bodies

elements of the earth

its crystal grit beneath our feet

it’s built from remnants of decaying plants

remnants which we must eat

we must take it in

we must absorb it through our skin.
